Prof. Suzy Moat
Suzy Moat is Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School, where she directs the Data Science Lab with her colleague Tobias Preis. She is also a Fellow of The Alan Turing Institute. Moat's research investigates whether data on our usage of the Internet, from sources such as Google, Twitter, Wikipedia and online games, can help us measure and predict human behaviour.
Her work touches on problems as diverse as generating rapid indicators of disease spread, estimating crowd sizes, and evaluating whether the beauty of the environment we live in might affect our health and happiness. The results of her research have been featured by television, radio and press worldwide, by outlets such as BBC, CNN, The Guardian, The Economist, New Scientist and Wired. Moat also acts as an advisor to government and public bodies on related topics.
